Red Shoe

I made this card for my daughter's birthday.
I used Spellbinders gold labels 4 for the white background.  A Spellbinders flower and Majestic Circles for the sentiment. Tattered Lace shoe die, red glitter card, white card, feathers, pearls and a peel-off.

Clarity challenge 36 - Love

I started thinking along the theme of Valentine's Day as it was so close.
I used Raspberry Adirondack ink throughout.
First I stamped the word 'love' with the letterbox kit and then masked it off as I wanted this to stand out.
The next stage was to place the heart stencil, without the inner piece on the card and very lightly brush through with the ink.
I then placed the abstract squares stencil underneath the heart stencil and brushed through again. 
Next I put the inner part of the heart stencil in place and brushed though again, this time quite heavily to give a contrast.
I stamped 2 of the wee folk and the kissing couple into three of the squares.
My background is black card and letterbox kit letters saying 'love'.  I stamped the word randomly over the black card and then brushed over with Lava Red mica powder. 
To finish the card off I cut out the heart, mounted it onto the black background and then mounted that onto some bright pink cardstock.

Clarity Calendar challenge - February

I found this month's challenge really difficult and am not too sure about the finished result.
First of all this is the only shaving foam background I could find and I don't have any inks to create more at the moment, although I'm sure you can use other mediums.  So having chosen my background I thought it looked rather psychedelic.  The first thing I could see was the rather strangely shaped tree in the foreground.  I then decided the boy was flying over some mountains which had many streams running into a gorge at the bottom.  In the distance I can see a secluded beach with hills behind.  Isn't it amazing what you can find in a piece of inky paper!
